Worldwide concern for the environment has spawned a new field of interest and expertise within the development assistance industry. Environmental projects have become the new ‘darling’ of the foreign aid community with donors and practitioners vying for suitable ‘eco’ projects to support. While this support for the environment mimics the attention the development industry has paid to women (and later, gender), concern for these equally fashionable issues has not always been synchronized. Many development practitioners promote environmental projects which accord nominal concern to gender issues. Drawing on a case study of eco-timber production in the Solomon Islands, this article demonstrates how environmental sustainability and gender equity should be seen as complimentary project goals.
